Outstanding trade school!! CIAT is "second to none" when it comes to the care for their students. I highly recommend this school to everyone who is considering the technology field. The hospitality and customer service made you feel like family. They are very military friendly and that makes this school flexible for Active Duty as well as Veterans and Retirees. I\'ve been attending for almost two years and my education plan set me up for success.Less

"Great instructors who made learning fun and informative. I appreciated the in-depth knowledge of the instructor as well as the numerous hands-on computer work. The head office staff was also very helpful and studious. My fellow students were friendly and as excited as me to learn computer repair, security and networking. Keep up the great work!"Less

"Enrollment: My friend recommend CIAT so I decided to check out the school. I was interested in Cyber Security but had no professional I.T. experience or education. After talking with admissions I decided to go for their Network Security degree program. What I like most about CIAT is that they offer both I.T certificates and an associate degree. CIAT accepts multiple sources for tuition payment. Set-up an appointment and CIAT will offer you several different options to fund your tuition. Classes & Certs: I experienced a bit of a learning curve at first, once I got past that everything started making perfect sense. CIAT offers tutors and Saturday boot camps that helped me understand the material better. I put in about two hours of studying, daily, to pass the I.T. certs. The home work is fairly simple, which compensates for the hours of studying you may have to do in order to pass the certs. Instructors are knowledgeable, reasonable, and down to earth. If any issues arise, just email your instructor and they typically accommodate. Job Placement Services: CIAT offers heaps of tools in order to help you secure a career in I.T. I was able to land an entry level I.T. position at a super cool tech start-up in San Diego within three months of attending CIAT. Shout out to Priscilla! Result: Success! Thanks to the education I received from CIAT, their job placement services, and my determination; I was able to land a well paying job in the tech industry."Less

The learning environment was great! Course work was balanced along with classroom teaching. I just would have liked to be able to get a certification testing voucher for every course passed AND be able to use that voucher anytime until the specific certification test expires. Why? Because I wasn\'t able to take every test due to the fact that there were no breaks in between courses allowing me to prepare for each certification test (I need at least three weeks of studying because I work full time).Less

The instructors were very knowledgeable in their given field and made learning entertaining as well as informative on some very dry topics.
